Carolina First Look

Carolina First Look is an opportunity for medical students who are preparing for the residency application process to visit the UNC School of Medicine & Health Care System to learn more about available specialty medical programs for residents.

The inaugural Carolina First Look program occurred on August 22 - 23, 2014 on the campus of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and Health Care System. 
Many thanks to our UNC faculty, residents, and staff as well as the participants for making this a successful event.
